Auggie really wanted to see a wild hedgehog on our trip to Germany. My uncle talked to friends who often have a hedgehog eat out of their cat dish at night. They said we can come by between 10 and 11pm and see…and maybe we'd get lucky.We sat in their living room and our hostess quietly checked until she saw him. This little guy was mildly annoyed that we interrupted his cat food meal, but he was not scared, otherwise he would have rolled into a spikey ball. We were even able to gently touch him. They were far more common when I was a child. I'm happy that Auggie got to see one in the wild too.

The famous and beloved Kinder surprise eggs aren’t sold here in the summer because AC isn’t widespread. You can just imagine than thin shelled chocolate eggs aren’t ideal in the heat. The summer eggs are the Kinder Joy eggs which you can get in the US too (two plastic egg halves filled with a chocolate cream and a toy), but Auggie is a purist and wants surprise eggs. We’ve kept our eyes peeled for any stragglers, but the stores are out at this point. Imagine our delight at finding 16 of the real deal Überraschungseier hidden on the bottom shelf of a supermarket! Obviously I bought all of them…let’s see how long they last
